Well, the CP is doing better than the Tennessean anyway,
which has a mysterious broken link to their article on this.
On the TV news they said she is a carry permit holder.
If that's true, I'm sure she forgot it was in there, otherwise she'd
have never gone through the screening with the gun in her purse.
I guess she shouldn't have had the gun on her at that location,
according to our current "law", but to be held on $10k bond for that is crazy.

She's from North Nashville, home of the
"how many murders did we have this week ?",
trained to use the weapon and trying to protect herself.

Will the NRA and it's sycophants be in an uproar over this? O! wait. Wrong color, wrong part of town. Lo siento.

If every person in North Nashville,Bordeaux and Parkwood who carried a gun in their purse or on their person were to be put through a scanner there would not be enough jails to hold all the people.

that's no excuse. and someone who has a carry permit should know better. she also has a pending weapons charge on her record.
